I Liked My Beard

January 25, 2014


I Liked My beard
As it was a mask
Under which I could hide

And pretend I was clever
And imagine I was witty
And feel like someone else

After I shaved it all away
Only truth remained
In the bathroom mirror

And I remembered that
I don’t like what looks back
At me every morning

  1. Reminds me of Corso’s “Hair”. Very nice.

    One of my favorites, Ernie-thanks for reposting.
